I just added this tool to my everyday carry.
I was able to accquire one of these for 50.00 even though they go for 200.00. I already open carry a fixed 6" blade CRKT/Steve Cokum"First Strike" and conceal a folder. This blade give me the oppty of concealment since it is under 3".
To my suprise, no concealment option was left out in terms of accessories. It came with a kydex sheath and 4 different adapters for all kinds or open and concealed carry options...it also comes with a sturdy neckchain for concealment in that fashion.
The Blade is thick and partially serrated which was a must... its has saw notches for the thumb for both classic and icepick holds which are great...
IMO this blade was made for a specific purpose and that is "WORK"....
